While THE LEGENDARY DOWNCHILD BLUES BAND can’t perform LIVE right now due to the pandemic, the band decided the next best thing they could do was release a LIVE CD to lift fans spirits in this challenging time and give them a live music concert experience.

DOWNCHILD will release their 50th Anniversary “Live At The Toronto Jazz Festival” CD on August 14, 2020, featuring special guests Dan Aykroyd, former Letterman bandleader, Paul Shaffer, blues/rock icon David Wilcox, Grammy nominee, Kenny Neal, Gene Taylor (Fabulous Thunderbirds) and Finland`s Queen of slide guitar Erja Lyytinen.

With the COVID-19 pandemic causing havoc for all touring Canadian musicians, DOWNCHILD will donate $5.00 for every CD sold to the Unison Benevolent Fund in support of their fellow musicians in these difficult times.

“We are honoured to be able to support a great cause like Unison, that truly takes care of our own, in supporting Canadian artists and Canadian music industry professionals in this difficult time. Like so many people across the country and around the world, the music community has been hit hard by the pandemic.” – Donnie “Mr. Downchild” Walsh

The Unison Benevolent Fund is a non-profit, registered charity that provides counselling and emergency relief services to the Canadian music community. They are there to help professional music-makers in times of hardship, illness, or economic difficulties.
